    TP is traffic programming. If your stereo is set to FM mode it should scan the stations and "look" for a traffic report. It is just extra information that is not herd but is sent out with the broadcast like the name of the band and the title of the song. If there are no stations around you that have it it should resume to the last channel listened to. I have on on my car to, good idea, but worthless where I live...

    It is where the radio cuts into the local travel news and then goes back to what you where listening to. If you don t have the radio on, it won t work. It is good for travelling but useless if you are going around town.
